Showers of joy...

Hello again!

I had a lot of requests to share how I created the rainy day scene using the Mushroom House background stamp from Hello Bluebird after I posted this card at the end of March. This past Saturday I did a Live coloring video on my Adventures in Coloring with Amy Facebook page sharing my techniques on a similar scene. This time around I used a seated fairy and ladybug from the Fairy Garden set along with various elements from the Fairy Dance, Puddle Play, Elephant Friends, Singing in the Rain and Strawberry Jam sets. I went over things like keeping background scenery colors lighter and more de-saturated with less contrast and detailed coloring in comparison to your main characters. This allows for all that scenery to really get pushed back into the rain once you start applying it over-top. If you are interested in checking it out, you can always watch the replay.  :)     

Stay crafty my friends!
